Hyaluronic Acid Skin Care Guide: Benefits and How to Use It

Dewy, glowing skin is always in style, and hyaluronic acid can help you achieve it. This itingredient has been a staple in skin care for years and is a must for keeping skin healthy, protected, and hydrated. Read on to learn more about the benefits of hyaluronic acid, as well as how to incorporate it into your skin care routine through topicals and aesthetic treatments.  

What Is Hyaluronic Acid? 

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a polysaccharide, a form of sugar, that already occurs naturally in our bodies. It plays many roles, supporting the cartilage in our joints, keeping muscles limber, and even promoting eye health. Because of its moisture retention qualities, its critical in maintaining hydration levels. For this reason, hyaluronic acid (also known as sodium hyaluronate), plays a major role in the skin. 

How Does It Benefit Skin? 

What makes hyaluronic acid unique is its ability to attract and retain more than 1,000 times its own weight in water. This ultra-hydration is what makes HA a superhero for the skin, since it can draw moisture from the surrounding atmosphere and pull it into the layers of the epidermis. 

When applied topically to the skin via skin care products, hyaluronic acid also fortifies the moisture barrier to prevent moisture loss, leaving your skin hydrated and protected throughout the day. It also gives your skin that much-sought-after supple, plump, and dewy look. 

How to Incorporate Hyaluronic Acid Into Your Skin Care 

Because of its usefulness as a humectant, you can incorporate HA into almost every step of your skin care routine. In fact, its probably an ingredient of many of the products you already use. To amp up the moisture factor, however, look for HA in serum form, as a serum will contain a higher concentration of sodium hyaluronate and goes on before your moisturizer.   

Whats more, always apply hyaluronic acid serums to damp skin if possible. Damp skin can accept moisture more easily than dry skin, and if your HA product is formulated with other ingredients, like occlusives, even better. Occlusives such as olive oil, jojoba oil, and mineral oil help seal in all the moisture HA draws to the skin. 

Aesthetic Treatments to Boost That Youthful Glow 

One thing to note is that as we age, our hyaluronic acid levels go down, and the skin is less able to retain the HA thats in our skin products, as well. By 40 or 50, our skin has about half as much of the HA it had at age 20. Additionally, daily environmental stressors like UV rays and pollution can accelerate this aging process, which leads to skin feeling dry, having uneven texture, and showing more fine lines and wrinkles. 

The good news is that aesthetic treatments are your ally when it comes to supporting the skins health and appearance.  

Venus GlowFacial Renewal Treatments & Glow Serums 

Venus Glow delivers a deep cleansing treatment to the skin and its subcutaneous layers, removing impurities clouding the skin for that fresh, dewy glow that hyaluronic acid can provide. Enhanced with our Venus Glow Serums which contain hyaluronic acid in its purest form, the treatments can address a variety of skin concerns: 

  • For brighter skin, GlowAstra is formulated with HA as well as powerful antioxidants and natural plant extracts to enhance skin tone, texture, and brightness. The result is a clearer, brighter, rejuvenated complexion.  
  • For clear skin, GlowClara contains natural marine and botanical extracts as well as hyaluronic acid to address acne, blemishes, redness, inflammation, and other texture imperfections for a calmer, smoother, clearer complexion.  
  • For youthful skin, GlowNova is an anti-aging serum containing hyaluronic acid and peptides known to help reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. It also restores a calmer, smoother complexion, making it ideal for those with rosacea and similar skin conditions.  

TriBellaFacial Renewal Treatments  

Our non-surgical TriBella facial, available exclusively from our Venus Versa device, combines three of the most sought-after procedures for restoring a youthful appearance to the skin into one treatment:  

  • A photofacial using advanced Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology to safely restore skins natural collagen and elastin and improve the appearance of uneven skin tone and sun damage. The targeted pulses of light also reduce visible blood vessels and dark pigmented spots. The result is glowing, younger-looking skin.  
  • An anti-aging treatment using Radio Frequency (RF) energy to produce heat beneath the skin, helping to promote healthy blood flow and increase the production of collagen and elastin fibers. The result is skin that looks firmer and younger, and with fewer lines or wrinkles. 
  • A skin resurfacing treatment using tiny electrode pins to create micro-dermal wounds and deliver NanoFractional RF energy deep into the skin to improve skin texture with minimal impact on the epidermis. As the skin heals, it naturally boosts collagen and elastin production for total skin renewal, as well as resolving large pores, scars, rosacea, and other irregularities.
